Rated 4 out of 5 by JanMom Faceting of Garnets Well Done
I was expecting (and wanting) rhodolite garnets that are a purplish red--what is usually meant by "rhodolite" garnets, and supposedly the most desirable of the rhodolites.These are cherry red and a bit dark. But in daylight (not necessarily direct sun) and bright artificial light the stones are very red and faceted well, so I see lots of red sparkle coming from all parts of the stones. The setting is pretty enough that in low light I don't mind the garnets being dark. There is a milgraine border on the sides of the ring which sometimes irritates my fingers. I don't think it is the small diamoniques on the side but rather the milgraine border that irritates. The under gallery is finished, with VERY small openings for cleaning stones.

This is my first Judith Ripka piece. I usually I shy away from Judith's pieces because they seem "too big" for me, but the size of this ring is perfect; totally believable. The color is pure raspberry. Totally Exquisite in every way.

I have more than numerous rings from QVC. I cannot count how many. This one looks like an antique like someone else said. The scalloped edges are feminine-love that!! The garnet doesn't resemble a rhodolite at all. I would swear that its Mozambique! gorgeous, its definitely a keeper. I am nearly 66 and It's my new ring!! try it. if you don't care for it---send it back! BUT you won't..................vz

I had been eyeing this ring for quite awhile. When it went on easy pay I jumped on it. I'm so glad I did. The Rhodolite garnets are breath-taking. They are a rich beautiful color. When buying gemstones color, color, color, is what you're looking for and wow! do these deliver. The stones are so clear you can see down into them. They have fire within. The setting is perfect. If you love vintage rings you will love this one. I haven't taken it off since I received it. Love it!!!

Beautiful color, crystal clear, just love Judith's creations. When I wear it I can't stop staring at it. Comfortable fit. Get compliments every time I wear it.

This ring is stunningly beautiful. I cannot believe that more people haven't written a positive review on it. One observation tho - the garnets look more like mozambique than rhodolite to me. Rhodolite is typically a rasberry red/ deep pink color. These garnets are burgundy colored. Having said that - they are still beautiful. But I do not think they are rhodolite garnets. I love the three stone setting surrounded by scalloped diamonique embellishment. Really, really perfect size ring for me - not too small, and certainly not a knuckle to knuckle style. This is my favorite Ripka ring to date.
